Go is an unreleased track recorded in early September 1985, in Nice France. Prince worked on the track further in late October 1985, when bandmembers arrived in France for the America video shoot, although it was worked on in rehearsal, rather than in the studio (and so is not listed below).

Engineer Susan Rogers noted that Prince put a lot of time and effort into the track, and must have been seriously considering it for release, although it was not included on any known configuration of Parade or any other project. It is likely that the song was considered for the announced Prince and the Revolution album Roadhouse Garden in 1998/1999, but this is speculative. The track remains unreleased.

  • Interestingly, Go is credited to Percy Begonia in a handwritten lyric sheet. This pseudonym was also mentioned on the lyric sheets for Soft And Wet (1976/1977 album version) and I Feel For You (1979) but never used publicly.
